“If you don’t eat meat, then what do you actually eat?”
If you’re vegan or vegetarian, then you’ve probably heard at least a dozen variations of this question directed at you. The amount of skepticism shown almost always sent me into defense mode, but what I’ve come to learn is that the reason why people ask is because they genuinely want to know.

I love new places, and it feels as if a new restaurant pops up every other day here in Walmer, Port Elizabeth! I don’t think I can keep up at this point, lol. But being spoilt with so much choice is a pretty good problem to have (I think)! Continue reading “Holiday Coffee Company.”
We had the pleasure of having breakfast at Brioche Food and Coffee one cold, but bright winter morning a couple weeks ago! Continue reading “Breakfast at Brioche.”
Once again, Walmer has proved that when it comes to restaurants, it doesn’t disappoint!
Last week, my sister, our friend Gift and I had a much needed catch up after finally being freeee from school and all other engagements that had been keeping us apart.
With so many new restaurants popping up we were really spoilt for choice on where to go, but in the end, taking into account ease of accessibility and affordability of menu prices, we settled on a place neither of us had ever been to but heard a bit about: Jack’s Bagels!

I’m not the biggest fan of rainy days, but I have to admit that there’s something about the atmosphere of cold, brooding weather that breathes life into certain places, transforms them into otherworldly wonderlands in the midst of the dark. It’s as if the rain comes down to bring them new life. Continue reading “Apron Strings.”
This is the actual definition of “better late than never”, a throwback post if you will, but I just had to write about this cute little place! Like it was too good not to write about so here I am over a month later…

This is actually one of the most long overdue restaurant reviews I have ever written, so here we go!
Cobblestone Bakery & Coffee Shop!
Another one of Walmer’s gems. If I had to use two words to describe Cobblestone, they would be comfort food.
This neighborhood restaurant has such a cosy, welcoming feel, and if those words had a taste, it’d be their food. It feels home made, as if you went over to your mom or your friend or your grandma’s place and they sat down and cooked and served you a meal. There’s just such a personal feel to this place, compared to other restaurants. There’s no over the top decor, or a menu I can’t understand, it’s all so simple and straight to the point.

The name of this darling little place sounds like the title of a delightful children’s book! So hipster, right? Out of all the restaurants I’ve heard of or been to, the Friendly Stranger’s name is definitely way up there ☺ if you’re ever in Port Elizabeth, you can find The Friendly Stranger on Bridge Street, Upper Valley Road in South End! Such a prime location, and such a BEAUTIFUL view of the valley from the terrace as a result! Not convinced yet? Read on!

First off, I’d just like to give a MASSIVE thank-you to all of you who read my last blog post! I’ve never seen such a positive response before! I really do appreciate every single person who takes the time out to read these, so thanks again ❤
This post was long overdue, but hey, as they say, life happens! So goes the life of a busy law student. 📚
I guess you could call this a part two, in a way, of my St George’s post ☺ Following our second visit to the park, a few weeks ago, we popped in across the road to ‘Savages Fine Foods’ for breakfast!

Summer is in full force, and this was just one of those days when the sun wasn’t actually melting my face off (thank God). The weather was perfect! It also helps that Grass Roof is in Sardinia Bay, that ocean breeze was so welcome! Sometimes you just wanna run away from the city, without actually having to leave. Grass Roof made me feel like I was away on vacation somewhere even though we were still pretty much in P.E 🙂 Continue reading “Grass Roof.”
